As if we didn’t have enough hockey in our lives, this past weekend proved to be a brutal hockey marathon. We had to drive up to Middlebury on Saturday both A and N’s games, and then to Burlington on Sunday for A’s game. To add to the fun, A had a Friday night game with a team that came all the way up from Albany. Talk about hard core. They made a 2.5 hour trip to play us at 7:30, then drove all the way back home. They must have gotten home at midnight. Plus, they were a dominating team that controlled the game, so I don’t think it was much of a challenge for them.
I felt bad, that’s a long way to travel for a hockey game, but apparently they are used to it and didn’t blink an eye. Now it’s our turn to reciprocate, and even then, they agreed to meet us halfway in order to play. Personally I would rather skip the whole ordeal, but we have to honor our end of the agreement, so we’re traveling 2 hours to play them. They’ll probably dominate us again, but such is the life of youth hockey. The kids love it, so I’ll stop complaining, sort of.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Henrik Brameus for the pic.
